[SatNews] ...to implement a reliable and flexible connectivity service in countries with harsh and challenging environments and limited terrestrial infrastructure.
Vizocom, a provider of integrated satellite broadband solutions, has selected the EUTELSAT 21B satellite operated by Eutelsat Communications (Paris:ETL) (NYSE Euronext Paris: ETL) to implement a reliable and flexible connectivity service in countries with harsh and challenging environments and limited terrestrial infrastructure.
Vizocom's new AfricAsia Satellite Services will take advantage of two high-power service areas of the EUTELSAT 21B satellite to offer connectivity with speeds ranging from 6Mbps to 10Mbps in the Middle East and Africa. Vizocom's service has been deployed in Mali for Bangladesh Army (BDA) Peacekeeping Forces situated since April 2014 in multiple military bases as part of a United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission. Vizocom's AfricAsia Satellite Services support BDA for critical functions, training services and logistics operations, ensuring mission preparation and execution while minimizing risks.
AfricAsia Satellite Services also enables companies and organizations operating in remote locations in Iraq, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Mali, Egypt, Liberia, Djibouti and Afghanistan to connect remote sites to the Internet and access services that include Voice over IP, corporate networking and data.
Mohammed Al Zahri, Vizocom's Regional Internet Services Sales Manager, said, "Vizocom's thrust into emerging markets in Africa and Asia, together with the new services provided through Eutelsat's satellites, positions us as the ideal provider for enterprises in the Oil and Gas, Security, Construction and NGO markets and brings best of the breed to our customers. Our experience, combined with Eutelsat's satellite technology allows us to provide unparalleled satellite services in the Middle East and Africa."
